his role playing mitt romney in president obama's debate preparation for wednesday. >> how do you get into the head of mitt romney and how do you prepare to play him with president obama? >> oh, andrea, i'm -- you know, i'm just going to listen to what he's saying but i'm not going to talk much about that process. i think it's better left to the candidates to resolve when they actually debate. >> well, the romney team, beth myers put out a memo really lowering or trying to lower expectations saying that president obama is such a great communicator, such a great debater, that -- >> yeah. >> had all this experience one on one, that mitt romney has only had -- no experience debating one on one because he was only in the republican primary debates. do you buy that? >> oh, please. please, please, please. give me 20 breaks. not just one. mitt romney debated against ted kennedy back in the '90s. he debated one on one when he ran for governor. he probably turned his campaign around when he ran for governor and won the governorship because of what happened in that debate. and listen to the rep
romney had what seemed like 163 primary debates earlier this year. how confident are the president's advisers that he's not a tad rusty? >> reporter: you know, i think that that's something, a story line that they would like to promote. what we've seen, it's almost comica comical, to the extent we've seen both camps downplayings the expectations. so much of life is expectations, so much of a political debate like this. one of the president's advisers the other day talking about, you know, the president's so loquacious. he's got to keep his answers tighter. and by turns, mitt romney's camp talking about the president's gifted oratorical skills. so they both can't be right, but i think both sides are relatively confident going into this. >> to hear both of them tell it, the other guy is the best debater since abe lincoln himself. mike viqueira, thank you so much. appreciate your time, sir. there are, of course, great expectations on both sides for next week's debate. the pressure is really on for mitt romney to knock it out of the park, as he entrance the debate, trailing in nine of
, practicing on those debates. of course, the person who is the mock mitt romney, if you will, john kerry, senator john kerry of massachusetts, he also battle tested. he had his own experience in these debates in 2004. people forget he had a series of epic debates debating a republican governor of massachusetts who challenged him for his senate seat back in 1996. that was bill welles. so it's going to be intense, and as you mentioned, he leaves tomorrow, has one event on the ground when he leaves for nevada. then he goes to ground, training at altitude, because the debate is in the mile-high city of denver. but we don't expect to see much of him. he's going to be doing a lot of practicing for that debate wednesday night. >> this is president obama's first debate since 2008. governor romney had what seemed like 163 primary debates earlier this year. how confident are the president's advisers that he's not a tad rusty? >> reporter: you know, i think that that's something, a story line that they would like to promote. what we've seen, it's almost comica comical, to the extent we've seen both
the other guy is a great debater. what are you anticipating? >> i'm in that examp that says mitt romney is going to do a whole lot better than his campaign would suggest. that this is a guy who thrives in narrow environments. when he knows that the clock is ticking down and he's got two minutes, he's got the perfect answer, he'll sound reasonable, all those things that newt gingrich said in this piece that he wrote, giving unsolicited advice to mitt romney about what the optics will mean as opposed to to what he said. i think it's 85% visual and 5% substance. so mitt romney thrives in those environments. as we saw in the debates. mitt romney suddenly woke up become a fiery and aggressive debater. i think that's what we're going to see a week from tonight. >> let's listen from newt's advice how to debate president obama. >> first, relax and be prepared. be honest. sorry that's out of the question. use humor, i don't know. $10,000 bets, that sort of thing. enjoy the evening. oh, thanks newt. that's really helpful. and of course, be assertive and be on offense against both obama and the me
and the president has to be held to account at the debates. even though this is a domestic debate wednesday, romney should question him on it. lou: your thoughts? you get the last word. >> i've been in des moines, iowa there, and people there are frustrated about what's going on in washington. they believe the administration's covering this up. they don't want white wash, but want answers. president's phenomenontures could tumble if they are not forthcoming and honest about what happened in benghazi. i think president obama's fortunes go lower opposed to up in the next days to come. lou: thank you very much. >> thank you. lou: much more on the obama administration's involving narrative, if you will, later, we take that up with the a-team. governor romney is a clear underdog right now, so why won't the liberal media call him just that? an underdog. could it be because voters love an underdog? we'll take a look at histories november surprises. the prints presses running over time. wall street loves it. the economy, apparently, needs it, and with the easy money, we couldn't poly did over the cliff, co
folks try to, you know, make romney out to be the king kong of all debaters and when the romney folks talk, obama is suddenly superman. candy crowley has an interesting take on all of this. let's watch this together. >> reporter: apparently romney supporter and republican governor chris christie didn't get the memo. >> wednesday night is the restart of this campaign and i think you'll see the numbers start to move right back into the other direction. >> reporter: note to governor christie, no, no, no, no. sop for predebate chatter is to lower expectations for your guy by raising expectations for the other guy. like this. >> president obama is a very -- he's a very gifted speaker. the man's been on the national stage for many years. he's an experienced debater. >> reporter: because this is a bipartisanly accepted strategy like this. >> we expect it all along that governor romney will have a good night, he's prepared more than any candidate in history and he's shown himself to be a very, very good debater through the years. >> reporter: since you're supporting romney, the candidate who
. the debates are starting. >>> tonight, the romney campaign e htf its own lies is actually sinking. because mitt romney got caught telling the truth about how he really fls about 47% of the american people. >> president obama and i both reut pandd class families. >> we have brand new polling out this morning. >> three new polls out today. >> three separate swing states. >> show voters trend ago way from him. >> barack obama is a little bit ahd athis me >> because the closer we get to the election, the dumber mitt romney appears to be getting. >> there's no question we've made a couple of mistakes. >> time that cruel cru mistress is slipping away. >> you may have noticed there's an election going on here in oh, i don't see a lot of victims. i see hard working ohioans. >> we can't afford four more years like the last four years. >> how many times can you visit the state of ohio before they get tired of seeinyou. trip. h9t >> if we win ohio, we'll win this election. >> if we win ohio, we win the election. >> governor romney has logged 17 trips. >> no republican in history has thesency without
the pressure on romney in these presidential debates, the first one a week from tomorrow, guys. october 3rd, thanks very much. bill clinton on mitt romney and the 47%. the former president talks to cnn's pierce morgan about the republican nominee and why the debates could make all the difference. >> announcer: this is the day. the day that we say to the world of identity thieves "enough." we're lifelock, and we believe you have the right to live free from the fear of identity theft. our pledge to you? as long as there are identity thieves, we'll be there. we're lifelock. and we offer the most comprehensive identity theft protection ever created. lifelock: relentlessly protecting your identity. call 1-800-lifelock or go to lifelock.com today. thank you, mr. speaker, uh, members of congress. in celebration of over 75 years of our government employees insurance company, or geico...as most of you know it. ...i propose savings for everyone! i'm talking hundreds here... and furthermore.. newcaster: breaking news. the gecko is demanding free pudding. and political parties that are actual parties!
presidential debate. jessica, thanks. also in new york city mitt romney speaking at the clinton global initiative just ahead of the president. romney focused on foreign policy as well vowing he would link u.s. foreign aid to trade with help going to developing countries that remove barriers to investment and trade. he also discussed unrest in the middle east and said he would have a different approach than president obama. >> a lot of americans including myself are developed -- excuse me, are troubled by developments in the middle east. syria has witnessed the killing of tens of thousands of people. the president of egypt is a member of the muslim brotherhood. our em bass dor to libya was assassinated in a terrorist attack. iran is moving towards nuclear weapons capability. we somehow feel that we're at the mercy of events rather than shaping events. a year from now i hope to return this meeting as president having made substantial progress towards the forms i've outlined. i also hope to remind the world of the goodness and the bigness of the american heart. never apologize for america
. romney campaign has said all along that the debates are going to be very important because it's a chance to see mitt romney square off with president obama and visions for the country. we are starting to see both campaigns to lower expectations for both candidates but this is last chance that romney have to voters take him seriously. >> gregg: i think the trick is for romney at least to come across as krebld and trust worthy and to have the better plan for the economy, that seems to be pretty clear. i wanted to point your attention to a recent bloomberg poll. one in five voters are persuadable and more of them actually tilt republican and lean in romney's direction. 41% says he has laid out a better economic vision compared to 25% saying the president has. are those folks, erin, really what both of candidates are aiming for here. they got to get some of that 20%? >> there is no question about that. how we know that is the other day president obama was campaigning down in virginia. he made that very remark. he was saying i know i have supporters out there in the audience but i wanted to t
, governor romney he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> reporter: i'm just okay i think a lot of people would say he's a little better than just okay. do the debates really matter? sometimes they do, 1960 they established john kenny as a bonafide candidate. we remember the reagan debates and the zinger lines he had. what happened with gerald ford, and al gore losing a lot of points to george bush in 2000. we could safely say again, bill in the overall these debates don't seem to move things all that much. >> it's must-see tv for all of us, we'll be there. john roberts out there in denver. martha: joining me now is a man who has observed many debates over his career. brit hume. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, martha. >> when you see president obama sa have that awe schukes moment -- >> they always play down themselves as a debater, we see it all the time. it's tiresome, predictable and meaningless. martha: what do you think of mitt romney with regard to the debates, how ready do you think he is? >> he raised his game as a debater between 2008 and 2012. he was pretty effective in
screens. bill: governor romney will give a major foreign policy speech soon after the first debate ends. the first debate ends wednesday night, as you know. martha: marsha blackburn has also criticized the white house response. she'll join us on what she thinks should happen next. we are getting reports of another homicide bombing killing 14 people, two of them americans. the bomber drove into a nato patrol. doug mcelway joins us live. it was a couple weeks ago the u.s. suspended patrols with afghan soldiers because of these insider attacks. have these joint patrols resumed now? >> reporter: they have. they resumed last thursday and the insider attacks have also resumed. not only the attack you just mentioned but also the suicide bomber attack, homicide bomber attack. the motorcycle laden with explosives drove into that marketplace. critics say this attacks reflect an obama foreign policy that refuses to acknowledge the reality on the ground. u.s. marines are tying tourniquets to their legs in hopes of surviving ied attacks before they go out on patrol. >> we are going to get after this
that in next week's debate. that's theonventional wisdom. the romney campaig say it is candidate is hard at work consered the mt tth ave icot begins to tune in to the election. while there's so much hype around the debates, next guest says we're radically overstating the importance. in the guest spot is john size, associate professor of political science at george wasngton john, let's have at it. the debates you say really don't matter that much. why not? >> i think there's two reasons. one is just that they're too late. they're not that many undecided vors left and secondly the candidates are usually so well prepared that they pretty much fight to a draw and partisans think their guy won and i don't think undecided voters move much in either direction. >> let's go to an example i e c politics polling average, day-to-day for september 2004 and we see bush was ahead in the week leading up to the debate by a six-point average over kerry. kerry had the really well received first debate perfornce against bush and then end of sepmberhtens toes t two ps basically a four-point shift to kerry a
, especially we haven't had the debate. the media is sort of wishful thinking trying to write off romney and i normally do not buy into the media that the media is completely on board on one side, this is the exception, this campaign season has been especially egregious in terms of them ignoring things bad about president obama and obsessing over things that are-- that mitt romney has done wrong. >> rick: cal, why? >> why? you have to ask why? >> i have to ask. >> oh, my goodness. well, first of all, these polls, we have talked about this before on the show. i'm opposed to news organizations doing their own polls and making news from them. what are you're going to see ten days, two weeks before the election, the story line, hey, the race is tightening because they want ratings and they want to sell newspapers, but these things are a sophisticated form of fortune telling. i passed on the way to the studio, a psychic, i almost said stop the cab and let me see who is going to win the election, a little less sophisticated, but the same approach. >> rick: judy, the narrative that gets played out
, then went to florida and had two debates with newt, that's the romney i want. >> the one-on-one debate forum is not necessarily president obama's best either. they've been after him for $700 million on character. the american people get 90 minutes to see whether or not that's real. >> i want to see the mitt romney that got enraged when obama said you didn't build that and came out and defended small businesses, defended people -- >> sean: apologizing for success. >> bold, take no nonsense, pull no punches. that's what i want. >> sean: good to see you guys. hour goes by too fast. we need another hour. thanks for being with us. let not your heart be troubled. have a good weekend. see you back here monday. >> winning the presidency, what does that take? a strong debate. >> i'm paying for this microphone. >> this is all theatre. it's theatre and politics. it's trying to get people to come in to the theatre and take a look, see if they like your play. >> yes, we can. >> you have to learn to see campaigns through the lens of the camera. >> campaigns are made of moments that everyone remembers. >>
that are more befitting a poorly researched high school debate. the reason the romney campaign at the end of the day is stumbling so seriously is that mitt can't quite figure out what he believes and even if he knew, he wouldn't be able to summon the courage to say it outloud. does mitt romney really believe that president obama thinks ambassador stevens' death was just a bump in the road? romney's spinelessness and on obfuscation of the treat speaks of a lack of respect for the voting public. he feels he can talk down to us, woo us without providing any answers and in the end be smug enough to make his innermost thoughts apparent only to those who pay $50,000 for a lunch to hear them. there's a lesson in all of this. democracy works. the public senses the lack of core mitt. it senses the lack of respect. it senses the lack of strength and it senses the lack of character all of these voids manifest about mitt romney himself. that's my view. now to my point. (vo) jennifer granholm ... >>for every discouraged voter, there are ten ang
romney turned in a debate performance next week. they say young people. they understand the energy, the enthusiasm is down from the historymaking year in 2008. if they can get those votes in the bank early, all the better. >> if they can get the base to turn out, the republican base, the democratic party base, but the undecided, the independents, i take it, correct me if i'm wrong, john. they want to see the three presidential debates, the one vice presidential debate and then they'll make up their mind. >> exactly right. because imagine if you were somebody who was swayed by a tv ad last night or something you saw in the news over the past couple days. you cast that ballot today and there is a big moment in the debate and you change your mind, too late to get it back. if you're undecided, you're likely to wait. the people were standing in line for both parties. you'll find obama voters in line those are people who are hard core and with their person, no matter what. republicans say in the end, as long as they get their base out, it doesn't matter if they vote early or late, it is
debate sessions with chris van holland and campaigned yesterday in the state of virginia, keeping romney's comments about the 47% in his line of attack. >> he attacks the 47% of the american people who he says paid no federal taxes. and he attacks, he, romney, attacking someone on taxes? woah. that's like me attacking someone for being passionate in politics. >> also yesterday here in new york city, president obama addressed the united nations. the general assembly there. the president strongly condemning the anti-islamic video that some say caused the unrest in the middle east, but he also says it did not justify the attack on the united states embassy. >> i know there are some who ask why don't we just ban such a video. and the answer is enshrined in our laws. our constitution protects the right to practice free speech. i accept that people are going to call me awful things every day. and i will always defend their right to do so. and we must agree, there is no speech that justifies mindless violence. >> in the last couple of weeks, he pointed out those are probably not the result of a
now on a br k barack obama impsion as well as mitt romney suddenly doing so well in this debate. so they can't -- it's -- the margs inhese stasre s t they need both obama to go down as they're going up. >> all right, mike. and apparently you've been deputized by "sports illustrated." you're here to reveal the new cover of "sports illustrated." >> what? >> there's a lot of goo news, good buzz inside the beltway. it's on the cover of "sports illustrated" this week. they're calling washington/baltimore america's unlikely new sports capital. seth davis, lanny son is writing in "sports illustrated" abo the beltway as the new spos surpower. we have the washington nationals tied with the reds for the best team in baseball. we have great hope for the redskins with this quarterback, rg3 which "spos illustrated" i hope he's better than that. >> yeah. it's definitely a moment. i can tell you as a yankee fan, the orioles are frightening at this point. >> aren't they something? >>ike allen, thanks so much. >> have a good week. >> a point of personal privile here. >> please. >> i want to hear abo
been made yet. dagen: what is the one thing that mitt romney needs to do in denver next week, in the debate? >> i think he has to associate obama's economic record, the slow and declining growth rate, and the fact that unemployment went up to 9%, 9 1/2 percent early in his presidency and stayed flat virtually across the entire four years and he has to point out exactly why that has happened during the obama presidency. and then of course talk about his own policies as they relate to those subjects. dagen: he needs to more closely read the "wall street journal" editorial page, because you have been talking about -- >> thank you. dagen: -- how to frame this for a year now, private economy versus government economy. again, read the "wall street journal" editorial page. thank you, dan. good to see you. >> all right. dagen: our next guest says the best bet for investors is to put their money right where the federal reserve is. joining us now is ceo of advisors asset management. overseas 8.9 billion dollars in assets as the company's chief investment officer. scott good of you to b
's not good at that. he's great at giving big speeches but i think romney can do very well over three debates. >> he's got -- you know, the president has, i think, kind of a contempt for sound bites. >> that's a great way to put it. >> what i would say back to that is "mr. gorbachev," tear down this wall is a sound bite. sometimes big ideas have to be torn down into sound bites. >> we have not. jfk in his inaugural speech. sound bites. >> that's just another way of saying clarity of thought. i think we're still in a place where if president obama had to build his library in the next, you know, x number of years, what would you -- is there a short phrase you could put on the wall? lots of paragraphs, and that's right. but there's also, you know, something to be said for a pithy way of talking. >> and the problem is there is a statement they put on the wall, but they change it every day. >> yeah. >> they're responding to barack obama's mistakes instead of saying it's economy stupid or are you better off than you were four years ago, even if they had borrowed from reagan anded with that every da
obama in the debates, you know. basically say come on, romney. we've heard enough of your b. s. right? and what you're saying is just lies about welfare. lies about taxes. lies about everything. and call him out. >> caller: in a poll last night they showed on tv, 83% of americans are going to watch the debates. >> bill: whoa. >> caller: that's a huge number to watch the debates. >> bill: i find that hard to believe. but still -- >> caller: registered voters. >> bill: if it was on ed's show, i believe it. i tell you what, the first debate particularly, tim, will be very -- there will be a huge audience for the first debate and obama's gotta be really out there. really slugging and he can't take any crap from mitt romney and can't let him get away with the weasley statements and romney -- can't get romney get away with just being like foggy right and not saying what he really intends to do or what he really plans to do. he's got to force -- you know what? i would like to see him debate like rick santorum did
. the romney campaign does need to turn around. he does need the debates to go well. is there time? yes. 41 days you can turn the ship around. but he will need to articulate it pretty well. the funny part about it is the president's own deficit and debt commission recommended something similar on tax reform, bringing down all the tax rates, expanding the base and eliminating tax credits and tax loopholes. dagen: ronald reagan, he did it. and then congress messed it up. bret, it was great to talk to you as always. thank you very much. please everybody -- well i know you all watch bret at 6:00 p.m. eastern on the fox news channel every night. if you don't, well, there you have it. you know what you will see tonight and every night. thanks bret. >> thanks. connell: hillary clinton, with some comments with higher taxes on rich people around the world, not just here, everywhere. we will talk to the judge andrew napolitano and get his thoughts on that. dagen: do you want to take a look at the treasury markets too? connell: i guess. dagen: we did a whole segment on treasury yields. here you go. co
has been winning the foreign policy debate. he has been winning on national security. lil' he's also winning on economics. >> that's what romney's biggest problem is. he's not winning on economy or national security. >> eliot: he should go on vacation. he would do better. every time he opens his mouth he goes down in the polls. ohio is the prime example. no republican can win without ohio. mitt romney down by 8 points. abby how is he going to come back? >> it is going to be very difficult. all i can say at this point he's not going to win on electability factor. he won't win on the relatability factor. >> eliot: likability, foreign policy economics. >> where he has some room to grow, i think is on substance. he needs to win the substance debate. that will be shown in upcoming debates. >> eliot: after watching for two years, he has to win the substance debate. he has how many days left? >> he's gotta provide more of a detailed, consistent plan that people can ingrate. >> he tried that with the secret
, but in all of the major swing states president obama's got a lead right now. mitt romney's got to find a way to turn that around, turn it around in the debates, and maybe the tax cut issue that you're talking about will be one tool in that arsenal. back to you, larry. >> many thanks to john harwood. now for some reason on the trail today, mitt romney said he's going to dial back on taxes. >> individual income taxes are the ones i want to reform, make them simpler, bring the rates down. by the way, don't be expecting a huge cut in taxes because i'm also going to lower deductions and exemptions. >> all right. i don't get any of that. i'm not sure what his message was. let me say this. household incomes are down over 8%, another 1% in august alone reported this morning. the labor force, shrinking, poverty way up, president obama himself offers no middle class tax cuts, he just wants to extend them, not new ones. there's no answers to this. it's mitt romney who has got to stay on the pro-growth message, take-home pay. take-home pay. i talked about it the last couple of nights, wrote a column on
in a position of economic risk. >> reporter: but even supporters are split on how romney can win this race. >> there is more fire in the be >> he needs tock wite s. abo t economy. >> reporter: more than half the country already started voting days before the first presidential debate. more numbers now. gallup is reporting the president's approval rating is sticking at 50%. and this could turn out to be his bestonth in a year. >> trapofos washington. thank you. >>> last night on the rachel madow show bill burton talked to racel about the impact or lack thereof super packs are having on the romney campaign. ory tel about mitt t romney is there is no story about mitt romney. the story they tell about barack obama is well he's always bad things. if you're trying to figure out well what is it that - what's the strategy here? how are we trying toin ts ra itorfi on their side. that's why they're so inefficient with their money. spending is a wreck. message is all over the place. that's why they're not having as big an impact and people thought they would. >> don't miss the unique take on politic
wednesday, and once we get into that stretch, there's going to it be debate after debate after debate. not at much time to get out on the campaign trail and that presents a problem for this campaign. >> all right, jim acosta. i know you're going to listen to romney's speech and bring us new sound bites as he begins speaking. jack nicklaus speaking and introducing the governor. jim acosta, thanks. see you later. >>> the romney campaign has k p company in ohio. president obama makes stops there with rails at two universities. bowling green and kent state university. coming up, kent state university in northeast ohio. student there are really excited. you see them here lining up for tickets to see the president. we'll talk to a student reporter at the bottom of the hour. >>> the outspoken and controversy leader of iran addresses the united nations general assembly later today. a live look for you at the united nations. the leader of the ivory coast speaking right now. the iranian president, mahmoud ahmadinejad is scheduled to speak in about two hours. western lead verse a history of wal
